Counterpoint Acquires Convergence
Vol. 917 
May 8, 2012

Las Vegas-based supplier Counterpoint (asi/46767) has acquired Maryland-based Convergence Corporation in a move designed to strengthen CounterPoint's position as a counter mat manufacturer. This acquisition expands CounterPoint's line of counter mats by incorporating Convergence's sealed edge construction. Going forward, the sealed edge mats previously created by Convergence will be branded as Precision Molded counter mats.

"We've long respected Convergence's durable construction and we're thrilled to incorporate their product lines to offer the industry's most comprehensive line of counter mats," said Laura Martinez, CounterPoint sales manager.

CounterPoint will maintain Convergence's Forest Hill, MD, production facility and utilize the company's staff. Convergence has been manufacturing counter mats for more than 25 years. "The experience of their production crew is essential for the manufacturing of Convergence's specialty products," said Martinez. "Having a production facility located in Maryland will also open up many opportunities to accommodate our customers located on the East Coast."

Launched in 2001, Counterpoint is a sister company to Digispec (asi/49716), Visstun (asi/93975) and AwesomeEye (asi/37661).
